Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty IV

Tech­nis­che Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin, Fac­ulty IV - Elec­tri­cal Engin­eer­ing and Com­puter Sci­ence, the Insti­tute for Soft­ware Engin­eer­ing and The­or­et­ical Com­puter Sci­ence and the Fraun­ho­fer Insti­tute for Tele­com­mu­nic­a­tions, Hein­rich Hertz Insti­tute, are look­ing for app­lic­a­tions for joint appoint­ment wit­hin the frame­work of the reim­burse­ment model (Ber­lin Model) for a period of five years.

Uni­ver­sity Pro­fes­sor - salary grade W2 (tem­por­ary)

for the chair "Machine Learn­ing and Com­mu­nic­a­tion“

asso­ci­ated with the head of the "Machine Learn­ing" depart­ment of the Fraun­ho­fer Insti­tute for Tele­com­mu­nic­a­tions, Hein­rich Hertz Insti­tute HHI.

Tech­nis­che Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin is one of the lar­gest, inter­na­tion­ally renow­ned and tra­di­tio­nal tech­nical uni­ver­sit­ies in Ger­many. Its efforts to increase know­ledge and tech­no­lo­gical pro­gress are based on the prin­ciples of excel­lence and qual­ity.

Tog­e­ther with the Fraun­ho­fer Insti­tute for Tele­com­mu­nic­a­tions, Hein­rich Hertz Insti­tute HHI, the Tech­nis­che Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin con­ducts app­lied rese­arch and devel­op­ment in the future field of machine learn­ing and com­mu­nic­a­tion.

The Fraun­ho­fer Insti­tute for Tele­com­mu­nic­a­tions, Hein­rich Hertz Insti­tute HHI is a world lea­der in the rese­arch of mobile and opti­cal com­mu­nic­a­tion net­works and sys­tems and thus con­trib­utes sig­ni­fic­antly to the stand­ards for inform­a­tion and com­mu­nic­a­tion tech­no­lo­gies. Fraun­ho­fer HHI rese­ar­ches the ent­ire spec­trum of digi­tal infra­struc­ture, from meas­ure­ment and rep­res­ent­a­tion to trans­port and eval­u­ation of sig­nals.

Sup­por­ted by a con­stantly grow­ing num­ber of avail­able train­ing data and suit­able com­puter archi­tec­tures, machine learn­ing (ML) is increas­ingly reach­ing the poten­tial of human per­form­ance and has already become an indus­trial stand­ard in some areas such as image, text and speech pro­ces­sing. Machine learn­ing is also used in the field of mobile net­works for a vari­ety of optim­iz­a­tion meth­ods. In this area of app­lic­a­tion, machine learn­ing will in all like­li­hood have a form­at­ive influ­ence in the future and will raise com­ple­tely new rese­arch ques­tions of its own.

Work­ing field:

In your role as Pro­fes­sor for Machine Learn­ing and Com­mu­nic­a­tion, you will explore the the­or­et­ical and meth­od­o­lo­gical fun­da­ment­als of machine learn­ing. You will fur­ther deve­lop exist­ing meth­ods (e.g. deep learn­ing meth­ods) as well as new mod­els and archi­tec­tures adap­ted to the respect­ive (com­mu­nic­a­tion) app­lic­a­tion (dis­trib­uted learn­ing, edge com­put­ing, image and video com­mu­nic­a­tion). Prac­tic­ally rel­ev­ant char­ac­ter­ist­ics such as reli­ab­il­ity, effi­ciency and trans­par­ency of these meth­ods are the focus of the rese­arch activ­it­ies.

You will bring with you exper­i­ence with deep learn­ing meth­ods and their app­lic­a­tion in sig­nal pro­ces­sing and com­mu­nic­a­tion as well as with inter­dis­cip­lin­ary coo­per­a­tion in this field. Excel­lent rese­arch achieve­ments and teach­ing exper­i­ence in the areas of decent­ral­ized machine learn­ing, inter­pretab­il­ity and com­pres­sion of ML mod­els and the app­lic­a­tion of ML in mobile com­mu­nic­a­tion and image and video com­mu­nic­a­tion are expec­ted.

The teach­ing oblig­a­tion at the Tech­nis­che Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin is 2 SWS.

In your role as head of the "Machine Learn­ing" work­ing group at Fraun­ho­fer HHI, you will be respons­ible for the sci­ent­i­fic, tech­nical and entre­pren­eur­ial con­trol and devel­op­ment of the group wit­hin the Fraun­ho­fer model and the Fraun­ho­fer over­all stra­tegy. Exper­i­ence in the stra­tegic plan­ning, acquis­i­tion and imple­ment­a­tion of natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal rese­arch and devel­op­ment pro­jects as well as com­pet­en­cies to increase the effi­ciency of devel­op­ment pro­ces­ses and in tech­no­logy exploit­a­tion are advant­age­ous.

You should be able to com­pet­ently rep­res­ent the main top­ics in rese­arch and teach­ing as well as in rese­arch and tech­no­logy man­age­ment vis-à-vis rese­arch spon­sors and rese­arch part­ners and to expand the stra­tegic link bet­ween the uni­ver­sity and the Fraun­ho­fer Insti­tute.
